Winters coming; time to split logs for your fire

Winters coming; time to split logs for your fire.

 
With the winter evenings drawing in, and the current clear skies leaving chilly nights, having a roaring log fire is a joy to behold. If you’re lucky enough to own a log burning stove, then you need a source of firewood. Once you’ve found this, you then need to get the wood split and stored ready for when you need it.

Enter the Woodstrapper by Invend; one of those brilliantly handy gadgets that you wish you’d invented!

The Woodstrapper - A brilliant tool for holding together your fire wood while you chop it!

The Woodstrapper then expands to accept the blade of your axe while you split the wood, before tightening again when the blade is removed.

Congratulations to all those who completed their AQA certified Introduction to Bushcraft & Survival Skills qualification today. Lots of great skills shown over the last couple of sessions & the water tasted pretty good as well by all accounts!
